Tobermore Assist Portsmouth City Council with £10.8m Community Hub

Portsmouth City Council developed the £10.8 million Central Community Hub in Somerstown as a method of housing vital facilities for the community; including a health centre, dental surgery, sports hall, housing office, youth and residents groups and a café. Bam Design crafted the unique, aluminium-clad elliptical structure as part of the project and sourced sparkling Sienna and Fusion block paving from Tobermore to create a stunning landscape.

Somerstown Central Community Hub is the focal point for huge local regeneration in Portsmouth, spanning across a dual carriageway and connecting the two halves of the community. The project was constructed by BAM Construction over the space of almost two years.

The beauty of the ‘capsule’ building was enhanced with the installation of Tobermore block paving products as a hard landscaping solution; Sienna in the modernistic colour of Silver and Fusion in the classic colour of Graphite was specified, creating a striking result for the grounds.
